5.0 out of 5 stars Great for youth and high school players February 13, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying I've watched quite a few Basketball videos and Ive coached Jr. High and Rec Basketball so my knowledge going in is fair.
Nash being one of the greats of all time has done a great job with all the basic fundementals, he also teaches drills to improve individual and team play. In the second video which I found really helpful he goes over Defense to Offense transition, Defense, Offense to Defense transition and Offense. Going over some basic zone and man to man defenses and offenses with the aide of another really good high school coach. Nash is really good as the Host, doesn't bore you, he's energetic and the kids he uses to instruct the viewer are kids we are likely to see at different levels we would coach. Best video by far that Ive seen or purchased. With the low price point of this video it makes it a must buy, have fun.

Several years ago I got four or five used instructional soccer videos for my kids. They varied widely in quality, but all had something constructive to offer. Using those videos as a basis for comparison, there is no comparison: all the basketball fundamentals are here in one DVD, presented in a way that is totally engaging. It's difficult to explain, but Steve Nash conveys such a great attitude- kind of a mixture of humility, enthusiasm, and hard work- that anyone involved in any competitive sport or endeavor could benefit from watching it. It's easy to understand how he got to be the league MVP, with the excellent mindset he has. This DVD seems to have been a labor of love on his part. As a final note, sports videos all seem to have cheesy distracting background music, but the riffs here really add to the overall effect.Thank you Steve Nash. My kids have benefited in many ways from your efforts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this one first October 5, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
These are the best basketball instructional videos out there. I'm a rec league coach for middle school aged kids (6th, 7th, 8th graders) and I too have watched a lot of these. The production qualities of other videos are generally a crap shoot with spotty audio or limited camera angles. This series has great production value and flows well. Sometimes instructional videos focus only on individual play and not enough team, or vice versa. There is a great balance here. Often times the instructors speak over the target audience's heads. Nash's style crosses the spectrum. He doesn't condescend when focusing on basic fundamentals and doesn't confuse when taking on more nuanced aspects. Nash is a great communicator. It's important to emphasize this. Often times my 6th and 7th graders have a hard time sitting through these things but throughout this series (taken in reasonable time chunks) they were engaged and interested. The kids that participate in the taped sessions range in age from middle school to high school and he puts them through several great drills. The transition from offense to defense to offense are especially helpful and I will be using a several of the drills presented during our upcoming season.

Coaches, and players, this is a must. Save your money and check these out before you spring potentially more dough for less informative and entertaining series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Are you the target market for this? January 31, 2009
Format:DVD
While watching this, it became apparent that I am not exactly the target market for this product. This is a great video for someone trying to COACH a team, as it is a great collection of individual and team DRILLS and the thinking behind them. It also demonstrates the execution of each drill, which is helpful to see how someone who isn't Steve Nash looks performing them, and how to "see the floor" as a coach leading these drills.

However, this is not my case. I'm a pickup player looking for ways to improve my game in a pickup environment. I am not in a position to run team drills, give advice, or assume that my fellow players are actively working on the same things as I am. So while many of the individual drills can be helpful, I'd rather dispense with the non-Nash demonstration half and get more of his tidbits.

To some extent, Nash touches on a lot of useful stuff. For example, when talking about defense, he explains the reason you slide step on defense is that if you cross over, the offensive player will cut back on you and you can't react. Really? I'd like to exploit someone like that. I'd prefer the time be spent on showing me what that looks like rather than watching some kids do figure 8 dribbling drills.

Nash does cover a lot of ground. I don't know of another single or double disc set covering so many parts of the game this well. But if I had a session with Steve Nash, I'd like a lot more tips on how what to look for when I'm looking for an open man, or how to position myself to have the most options and the best vision.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't go wrong with the fundamentals! March 20, 2009
Format:DVD
Steve Nash does a great job on presenting coaches and players a progressive mindset for building their fundamental basketball skills. I love how he reinforces the need to continually practice ball handling skills and why it's important to understand team offensive and defensive positions. Things move very fast on the DVD so you may need to watch it a few times.
